Gloves used for thermal protection are designed to provide protection against high heating applications whereas the ones used for specialized operations are generally made up of materials, such as aramid, that offer high tensile strength and have resistance to a variety of forces. A positive application outlook across the oil & gas, electrical, chemical, and automotive industry owing to the presence of arc flash environment will positively influence the demand for arch flash protection gloves.

Vinyl Gloves account for around 14% volume share in the U.S. safety gloves market size in 2019. They are inexpensive to manufacture, making them a cost-effective alternative to latex.
